Gene helped shape me into who I am today. Without RuneHQ and without Gene being who he is, I never would have had the opportunity to become an Administrator and help shape RuneHQ into it what it is today. He helped teach me most of what I know about servers. He helped teach me what it means to run a business. He helped teach me how to argue my opinion to someone as stubborn as an ox. For everything he has done for me, I am forever grateful. The thing I'll remember most about Gene has nothing to do with how much I disagreed with his decisions nor how much I disliked his approach. We may not have always seen eye-to-eye, but I can't deny how enthusiastic he was about making sure this site was up to his standards. I'll always remember the Gene that was having fun with and helping the community; the Gene that was playing RuneScape like the rest of us; the Gene that was singing when nobody wanted him to just because he was enjoying life. That is truly the Gene we all know and love.
I'm glad to hear nothing negative is happening to this site, but even if things do change in the future, Gene will never be forgotten.
RIP Gene. <3
